Cars And Coffee with A Mitsubishi i MiEV Electric Car
I’ve been going to the Irvine, California Cars and Coffee Saturday morning, much too early event for a few years. Cars and Coffee is that event where anything can happen. This is the place where a Ferrari Enzo could be parked next to an original Fiat 500. This is where muscle cars are next to tricked out Lamborghinis. This where the new collector meets the seasoned ones, where older folks take the younger generation just to hear them say: “Wow, I didn’t old cars were so cool!”
Where Are The EVs? One thing you don’t see too much of are electric cars at Cars and Coffee. If the Saturday morning ritual brings in a crowd of experts and rare cars, electric cars are still not the norm. The occasional Tesla will make a sneak peak and park next to a Spyker. This is also why I had a certain amount of trepidation driving the Mitsubishi i MiEV to this gear head meet. How would people react to an electric car in the midst of the gasoline world? Much to my surprise, the reception was good and intrigued for the most part.
